Truffles are bite-sized petit four made with a creamy mixture of chocolate, butter and liqueur.
I usually make them for Easter but also for Christmas and other parties. I hope you like this recipe with portuguese liqueur Tia Maria, they are really creamy and flavoured.
7 oz (200gr) dark chocolate
31/2 oz (100 gr) butter
31/2 oz (100 gr ) icing sugar
1 tablespoon Tia Maria Liqueur
Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, then add the butter and stir continuously until the mix is smooth. Remove from the heat and add the sugar, the egg and the liqueur. Let rest in cold two hours.
With a teaspoon, take small pieces of chocolat and work them quickly with hands to form a ball. Then roll it in cocoa. Let rest in cold again.
